There are many excellent internet resources that can provide education and support on a variety of different personal growth or mental health issues.  These are our staff's favorites. While we recommend them, we cannot fully endorse all the information on these sites. 

We think it is important for every individual to make informed choices about what material they receive and how they use it. It can also be important to speak with an informed and supportive person one-on-one. For further information about counseling services at the College of Oneonta, see the Counseling Center Website.

For a list of campus resources available to College of Oneonta students see the Student Services website.

We also have a list of national and local phone hotlines and chatrooms/blogs that may be helpful to people that need information or support.
